A bold blend of primarily Zinfandel, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Apothic Red leaves a lasting impression of flavor and texture on the palate. Zinfandel offers bold dark fruit flavors and spicy notes, complemented by the soft mouthfeel of Merlot. The Syrah adds layers of smooth blueberry, while the Cabernet Sauvignon delivers ripe fruit flavors and a firm structure. This decadent blend is framed by hints of black cherry, vanilla, and mocha. Description: Apothic is a true original. Named for the mysterious place, Apotheca, where vintners stored their most coveted concoctions in 13th century Europe, Apothic blends fuse Old World intrigue with modern sophistication. Winemaker Debbie Juergenson lets the character and flavor of each varietal guide the shape of her wines. In addition to the two bold wines that started it all – Apothic Red and White – Debbie offers a selection of limited release blends. Winemaking Notes: Apothic Red fermented in 60% cone-sweep tanks and 40% upright tanks for up to seven days at a maximum temperature of 85°F. Some lots were racked and returned; some were made using the saignée method of removing some of the pressed juice to create more intense color and flavor in the remaining must. Across all lots, we exercised meticulous temperature control by cold soaking the grapes early and managing heat spikes as fermentation progressed. Apothic Red was aged on different types of oak to encourage notes of vanilla, mocha and toffee in this unique blend. - Winery Varietal Content: Zinfandel, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon T itratable Acidity: 0.55g/100ml pH: 3.74 Alcohol Level: 13.5% Residual Sugar: 1.5g/100ml
